NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) _ Lawyers for a Connecticut man charged with killing his wife in 2002 are expected to present evidence in court that she died of a heart condition as they seek a reduction to his $2.5 million bail.
The Day of New London reports that Charles Buck’s lawyers plan to argue for the bond reduction in New London Superior Court on Wednesday afternoon, based on a Yale University pathologist’s opinion that Leslie Buck died of a heart condition.
Charles Buck of Mystic told police he found his wife unresponsive at the bottom of a staircase in their home. He denies wrongdoing. The medical examiner’s office couldn’t determine whether the 57-year-old woman’s death was a homicide.
Prosecutors allege Charles Buck was infatuated with another woman and inflicted a fatal blow to his wife’s head.
